In concert with BobbyBlue Design, we designed a new global navigation and template system to populate all the other school pages, in addition to the new photography-rich global corporate home.

The result? A bold, colorful overview of the benefits of enrolling your child—whatever the stage of development—in the community of Action Day Primary Plus schools.

Fall of 1920 “Collide” CD http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/2012/07/fall-of-1920_collide/ http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/2012/07/fall-of-1920_collide/#respond Tue, 17 Jul 2012 00:07:50 +0000 http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/?p=1385 Hot off their last tour, Fall of 1920 needed a sharp design for their first full-length album “Collide” …this is the impactful result.

Together, we take an epic road trip with the Seattle-based indie-rockers: featuring photographs of dusty, backroad towns, and long stretches of highway—the cover art takes us right to the scene of the accident for a musical collision with all wonderful abrasions and bruises included.

LoveTech presents: Robotspeak Sessions http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/2012/03/lovetech-presents-robotspeak-sessions/ http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/2012/03/lovetech-presents-robotspeak-sessions/#respond Wed, 14 Mar 2012 22:48:22 +0000 http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/?p=1102 We have long been fans of the LoveTech organization and jumped at the opportunity to design this Robotspeak Sessions event flyer. In the spirit of the night’s performers, we took some traditional photographic elements and ran them through various digital chaos-filtering techniques—similar to how the musicians bend transitional music into clever new forms—and topped it off with bold typography and some glitchy robots for good measure.

The event was free, and hopefully you were able to attend. If not, I highly recommend you look for future events. This isn’t your daddy’s boring old DJ music—we’re talking live electronic music the likes of which you’ve never seen before!

Stories that touch almost everyone in the computer industry around the world.

We are fortunate to have been tasked with designing a home for all the history to live within. What you see here is the fruits of that labor, developed in collaboration with BobbyBlue Design: A robust, yet easy to navigate online repository of all the precious history they hold is temperature-controlled, secure storage locations. Now researchers, script-writers, and all forms of historians will be able to dig through decades of timelines for that precious gem.

This pool-side, forest camping party features more than 30 top DJs/musicians; includes live performances, the Dodo Bus straight from Burning Man, a tea temple, art, massage, fire-dancing, and more. For this year’s flier we blended ethereal forest imagery with Luiza Leite’s fantastic photography from last year’s event, and sprinkled in a few disco balls for good measure!

Nonagon “Verdigris” CD http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/2011/03/verdigris-album-art/ http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/2011/03/verdigris-album-art/#respond Tue, 01 Mar 2011 20:00:01 +0000 http://portfolio.exkclamation.com/?p=1244 Nonagon decided to participate in the Record Production Month (RPM) Challenge. The goal is to write and record 10 songs or 35-minuted of material during the month of February. No previous work allowed.

We had been working on his logo for a few months when this project started, and decided this was a great showcase of that new brand. The photo was chosen from some live-performance shots, and heavily edited for texture and mood. Funny enough, a lot of the gear that is in front of him belongs to the previous performer, but the overall DIY quick-and-dirty aesthetic of the image really rung true to the spirit of the project. Additionally, the title of the final work was chosen after the artwork was complete, based on the greenish-blue background color.

For more info on the project check out Nonagon’s blog or his Bandcamp page (for a few other great albums).

Role: Creative Direction, Design, Branding, Production
Project: Lisa Ling and Sophia Kim came to us with a challenge: build a world-class social forum for women; a place to share experiences, strength, and wisdom (while still maintaining their anonymity); branded for the modern, sophisticated, stylish woman (not-at-all girly, frilly, or pink); a site that’s expandable, extensible, and flexible enough to handle millions of page-views daily; and complete the entire alpha-site project within 2 weeks—in time to launch during Maria Shriver’s Women’s Conference!! Exkclamation (in conjunction with Leftlane Creative and LYD Labs) rose to the occasion.

In approaching the media kit design, we brought to life all the unique spaces that exist inside the compound through vivid color photography, bold colors, elegant typography, and a clean layout. The result is a simple, sophisticated, 24-page snapshot of the venue, and an excellent marketing tool for their restaurant and club promotions. (Download the PDF)
